As we ready ourselves for another weekend of music, hedonism and a bit more music we have The Courtneys, three young mercurial Canadians to thank for the Far Out Track of the Day and while we’re at it we must also pause, to give yet another tip of the cap to one of our favourite labels from across the pond, Burger Records, for directing the limited addition Courtney’s effort ‘Lost Boys’ towards a more than welcome UK home.

As you may well gather from these fuzz infused sonic specimens, The Courtneys, whom consist of Jen Twynn Payne – Drums/Lead Vocals, Sydney Koke – Bass/Vocals and Courtney Loove – Guitar/Vocals, take great influence and pleasure from former greats and similar slack merchants Jesus and the Mary Chain, Dinosaur Jr and Sonic Youth as they go about delivering their own brand of Rock & Roll infused with dreamy riffs and pinches of Punk.

Having just embarked upon a monster tour yesterday starting in Vancouver (home to Far Out friend Tess Parks) and finishing in Michigan at the end of June, don’t be surprised if you hear a lot more of The Courtneys in the coming months and beyond.
